Two hungry cannibals are walking through the forest when they see a man
who had recently passed away. One cannibal says, ”Look at this! You start
at the feet and I’ll start at the head and we’ll meet in the middle.” So
the two cannibals start eating. After a half an hour one stops eating,
looks up and says, ”I don’t know about you, but this is great! How are you
doing?” The other cannibal answers, ”This is great! I’m havin’ a ball!”
The other cannibal says, ”Hey, slow down, you’re eating too fast!”
Chatting with a bull, a turkey sighed and said, ”I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree, but I haven’t got the energy.”
”Well, why don’t you nibble on some of my droppings?” replied the bull. ”They’re packed with nutrients.”
The turkey pecked at a lump of dung and found that it actually gave him enough strength to reach the first branch of the tree.
The next day, after eating some more dung, the turkey reached the second branch. Finally, after a week, there he was, proudly perched at the top of the tree.
Soon, though, the turkey was promptly spotted by a farmer, who shot the turkey from the tree.
Moral of the story: Bullshit might get you to the top, but it won’t keep you there!
Mother Teresa died and went to heaven.
God greets her at the Pearly Gates.” Are you hungry, Mother Teresa?” says God.
”I could eat,” Mother Teresa replies.
So God opens a can of tuna and reaches for a chunk of rye bread and they share it.
While eating this humble meal, Mother Teresa looks down into Hell and sees the inhabitants devouring huge steaks, lobsters, pheasants, pastries and wines. Curious, but deeply trusting, she remains quiet.
The next day God again invites her to join Him for a meal.
Again, it is tuna and rye bread.
Once again, Mother Teresa can see the denizens of Hell enjoying caviar, champagne, lamb, truffles and chocolates.
Still she says nothing.
The following day, mealtime arrives and another can of tuna is opened.
She can’t contain herself any longer. Meekly, she says: ”God, I am grateful to be in heaven with You as a reward for the pious, obedient life I led. But here in heaven all I get to eat is tuna and a piece of rye bread, and in the Other Place they eat like emperors and kings! I just don’t understand.”
God sighs. ”Let’s be honest,” He says. ”For just two people, does it pay to cook?”
The teacher of the earth science class was lecturing on map reading. After explaining about latitude, longitude, degrees and minutes the teacher asked, ”Suppose I asked you to meet me for lunch at 23 degrees, 4 minutes north latitude and 45 degrees, 15 minutes east longitude...?”
After a confused silence, a voice volunteered, ”I guess you’d be eating alone.”
